De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) produced 25 newly Licensed Professional Teachers (LPT), with three from Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) and 22 for the Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSEd), from the recently concluded Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET), Dec.16.
Marly Tenorio, a 2021 DLSL graduate and one of the passers in BEEd, said that despite stopping for 20 years before continuing college and having the struggles of reviewing while being a mother, she is happy to have passed the boards and is thankful to the people who believed in her in the process.
“I’m so happy when I learned that I passed the Licensure Examination. Sa sobrang happy ko, I cried. Naala-ala ko ang mga taong nagtiwala sa akin na naging dahilan kung bakit ako nakapag-aral sa isang prestigious school,” said Tenorio.
Tenorio also shared her experiences and advised future LET takers to start reviewing their lessons, especially on parts they struggle with to be better prepared for the exams.
Meanwhile, Lara Joyce Solis, a 2020 DLSL graduate and another BEEd passer, shared the emotions she felt upon knowing the results.
“Mixed emotions, kasi ang tagal namin nag-wait dun sa results […] pero ang nangingibabaw ay happiness kasi nga ayon, nakapasa. Tsaka na-relieve ba na yung agony of waiting is natapos na,” Solis said.
Solis also told Lavoxa that she aims to apply for a job in a public school to make the most of her license and to utilize her talent in teaching.
The passing rate for DLSL remains unchanged since the June 2022 LET for elementary education with three examinees passing and producing a 100% rating, while 22 passers out of 27 takers for the secondary level, corresponding to a total of 81.48% passing rate, which is 31.48% higher in comparison to the examination’s results last Aug. 4.
Furthermore, 49,783 out of 91,468 passed as elementary teachers and 71,080 out of 139,534 passed as secondary level teachers, corresponding to 54.45% and 50.94% national passing rates, respectively.
The examination was administered last Oct. 2 in 31 testing centers nationwide and abroad.
